Hello I am not going to link the project because while my question stems from the project, it is not entirely related. So in the assignment we are asked to create a function and then a list of colors.
Which I have done so:
def color_count(color): cc = 0 for x in colorscleard: for y in x: #print(y) if y != color: #print(y) continue elif y == color: cc += 1 else: return"Something went wrong!" return cc colorlist = ['red','yellow','green','white','black','blue','purple'] z = 0 while z < len(colorlist): color_count(colorlist[z]) print("Today " + cc + " amount of " + colorlist[z] + " were sold.") z += 1
So then I wanted to create a while loop to run the entirety of the color list and see for myself if the while code would work. While my initial function works, the while code doesn’t because I am unable to acquire the value for cc whenever it runs the function above.
What do I need to do if I want the code to automatically use the return value of a function at a completely different code block? Is there a special phrase for it?
